With the exception of succulents, in all the years I have been gardening I haven't done much plant propagation, I have sowed lots of flower seeds but made few attempts to start plants from cuttings. This all changed when I wanted some roses to plant around the base of the fountain in the new rondel garden. I knew just the roses I wanted, I already had some in the rear garden, but it is impossible to find more as I can not remember the name of this rose or where I got them. So, I decided to take some cuttings.
To help provide the cuttings with a good start I needed more cloches and last week I found just the right ones at World Market.
I am also trying to propagate some other plants along with the roses, I decided to put them all together on the shelf outside of the kitchen window where I can keep a good eye on how they are doing.
Seeing them all lined up like this reminded me of a work-yard I visited at a chateau in France. Isn't this wonderful. There is some serious gardening going on here and of course the gardens were fabulous.
I will never have a use for that many cloches and I certainly don't have such a sumptuous garden but I rather like the way they look and the rose cuttings I that I took earlier seem to have taken. Hooray!
I think I have discovered a new hobby.
Thank you for visiting.
